There are two spots that take the prize most of the time: (1) The upper corner on the latch side of the door (the side with the door knob). (2) The bottom of the door, again on the latch side. Both of these conditions indicate that the door is sagging. Over time the weight of the door pulls on the top hinge and loosens it up. contact us for any Adjusting Exterior Doors for instructions on tightening the top hinge and checking the door for alignment. This is a very common entry door repair problem.
Humidity can make a wooden door swell in the summer, causing it not to close. If this is a persistent problem, you can sand or plane the door to take enough material off the door so that it will close. Caution should be used when doing this. Later, in the winter, the door will shrink and may result in a gap if too much wood is removed.
Are you sure the door is swelling? This is only going to be true if it is an all wood door and it is not sealed very well. Check the margins first before you start sanding or planing a door. contact us for Sanding and Planing a Door for instructions on sanding or planing a wood door.

Wooden Door Repairs
Wooden doors are traditional, beautiful and incredibly popular. However, because they’re made from nature, they’re also susceptible to nature’s elements.
Whether you have problems with your front, internal, laundry, back, bi-fold or french doors, we’re the wooden door repair specialists and can help.
Common problems with wooden doors:
Door is getting stuck within the door frame
Wooden doors are porous so they respond to the changes in temperature and humidity. They can warp, bow, rot, swell (expand) and shrink with the changing seasons or surrounding elements.
The ‘settling’ of a house into its foundations can also create issues with wooden doors not fitting within their frames, becoming too tight or too loose. These problems can often be fixed with a re-fit or re-hang of the door within the frame, or by addressing the surrounding elements such as sealant or paint.
Your door handle and lock might be getting jammed with age and the accumulation of dirt within the internal components over time. They could also have been damaged due to a break in. Door handles and locks can be easily repaired or replaced by our door repair specialists who can determine the best solution for you.
Door is noisy or squeaks
